The Suddenly Slim diet is an herbal weight loss program that offers a fast way to lose weight using meal replacement shakes, diet pills, and supplements. This diet claims that within ten days, it can increase the metabolism to make the body burn more calories and lose weight without altering diet or exercise habits.
The products used in this program contain many herbal ingredients commonly found in herbal-based diet products. The diet claims that the herbal ingredients work by suppressing the appetite, increasing energy levels and metabolic rate, and cleansing the body in a detoxification process.
The program lasts for ten days, during which the dieter drinks meal replacement shakes and takes diet pills. The shakes are supposed to satisfy and reduce hunger and provide the body with important nutrients. The diet pills and supplements contain ingredients such as caffeine, green tea, and soy protein to promote health and weight loss.
Before taking any herbal supplement or weight
loss drug, it is a good idea to consult your doctor about the safety of the
diet and whether it is right for you. Many herbal ingredients may have
beneficial health effects, but with any drug, there are health risks involved.
One such example is with diet pills containing the popular ingredient Ephedra,
which is currently banned in the United States due to serious health risks
(recent formulations of Suddenly Slim products have replaced Ephedra with bitter
The Suddenly Slim diet is considered by many to be a "fad diet" that
works for some but not all. One of the reasons this diet can fail is because it
is difficult to achieve permanent weight loss in such a short amount of time.
Many people on the Suddenly Slim diet plan report losing weight but end up
regaining it after the diet ends. For most people, it takes a lot of dedication
and lifestyle changes to successfully keep weight off. Typically, long-term
health commitments such as healthy eating habits and regular exercise will lead
to natural weight loss.
Unfortunately, many people have difficulty maintaining a healthy lifestyle for permanent
weight loss. Many struggle to lose weight because they suffer from
out-of-control appetites, emotional stress, strong food cravings, or a lack of
motivation. Since these are mental or "thinking" problems,
hypnotherapy has been proven to be an effective weight loss aid that helps solve
these problems and helps people shed pounds naturally.
One of the best uses for weight loss hypnosis is for natural appetite
suppression. Hypnosis works by tapping into the power of the unconscious mind to
deal with the underlying causes of an uncontrollable appetite. Many people
cannot seem to control their appetites because they are "emotional
eaters," who eat in response to their feelings, such as when they are sad
or bored. Hypnosis breaks the unconscious link between our emotions and eating
to free emotional eaters from the impulse to overeat.
Another reason why a person may suffer from an uncontrollable appetite is
because the individual is unconsciously "conditioned" to eat in
certain situations. For example, it is easy to "zone out" in front of
the TV and snack on junk food, even when you're not actually hungry. Hypnosis
helps re-train the unconscious mind to extinguish the urge to mindlessly
overeat, resulting in natural appetite suppression without pills or drugs.
Hypnosis is also a powerful tool for battling stress. Stress and anxiety often
cause people to overeat, or reduces their motivation to exercise and pay
attention to their own health. Hypnotic techniques, expecially the newer forms
called Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), can help you think more positively
and cope with stress in a way that promotes health and relaxation.
A lack of motivation is another serious issue that stands between many dieters
and success. Hypnosis and NLP techniques are the answer for
increasing motivation. First, you explore and identify what is most
important to you. Then you use NLP to make yourself believe that the important
things in your life will benefit if you exercise and improve your health and
your looks. This keeps you strongly motivated to exercise and lose weight.
Anyone can learn NLP and hypnotherapy techniques from a good hypnosis
weight loss CD program. Hypnosis diet CDs use the power of the unconscious
mind to help dieters lose weight. By eliminating cravings and urges to overeat,
the appetite is controlled in a non-invasive, effective manner. Properly
formulated hypnotherapy will naturally increase one's motivation to exercise and
help achieve one's weight loss goals. Because hypnosis is excellent at helping
dieters to lose weight naturally and permanently, it has become a popular weight
loss aid that is suitable for everyone.
